Adam Savage Rancor Maquette Statue Reveal!

Adam unboxes and reviews the incredible replica Rancor maquette from the artists at Regal Robot--a near-perfect recreation of the original puppet designed by Phil Tippet for Return of the Jedi. Details like the construction of the eyes, the gnarly claws, and even the dripping drool of the fearsome creature are recreated here based on access to the original puppet and input from Phil himself. It's an incredible tribute to the creature design and practical puppetry showcased in the original Star Wars trilogy and Adam couldn't be more excited to meet it!

    Clicked the link to Regalrobot, quickly glanced at the prices, closed the browser window. Not saying their stuff isn't worth the price. It's just best if I don't know these things exist. ;-) Limiting the # produced to '83 was a nice touch. =)

    Much more interested in the pool table than the thing that came out of the box, sorry. Got decent at pool working on the highways summers when I was going to art school. Nothing to do in small towns after work but drink beer and play pool on dubious tables with dubious cues. I’d look for the most bent cue and play crazy shots. The locals would get a chuckle when I grabbed the wonky cue but that was my hustle.

    Great video your enthusiasm is infectious and a joy to watch,on the matter of the Rancor tail I believe that was needed due to the fact the original film monster was a puppet so there would have been a hole for a hand to fit inside so something was needed and I think it looks fantastic. Keep up the good work and thanks for keeping me sane through lockdown.

    If I had a shop like that, I'd feel compelled to write my own Sci-fi story/script. And then, I'd set about making the most amazing collection of props and costumes that I could muster. It would be great to make in complete creative freedom - not trying to duplicate someone else's vision or conform to other designers imagination.

    I had one of the original rancor monster figures when i was a kid, it was made of heavy plastic and just the mouth and arms and legs kinda moved. It was a large figure compared to all the other SW ones, sadly after a few years my mother threw it out even tho there was nothing wrong with it, I so wish I still had it today. I also had one of the few original Xenomorph figures which stood very tall and sadly she threw that away as well... today worth thousands :'( Loving the content Adam and whish I could afford to help out on your patreon, but sadly I am unable. But what you do is much appreciated. Keep it up :)

    Why would a man so invested in star wars and even worked ON 2 star wars films with ILM.... pronounce it "Ranker"... 😖😖😖😖😖 i think he pronounces it like the websters dictionary word but i have never heard anyone in the star wars community pronounce it that way. Its always "Ran-core". Side note: i hope he doesnt see this and other comments like it... i really dont want him to feel self concious about it or bring him down in any way 🙁 because despite this nit pick we still have a deep respect for him and his love of nerd culture and nothing will ever change that
